I can't seem to get passed level 1. I'm using a torch lighter and holding it in for at least 20 seconds. Probably more like 30secs. I wish I had a bong, but the smoke isn't that bad with my spoon pipe. One thing I'm not sure about is that I instinctively swallow after I inhale. The irratation of the smoke doesn't make me want to cough as much as just to swallow. Does that cause me for some reason to not absorbed the smoke correctly? I notice that I don't exhale much smoke and sometimes when I burp a little smoke comes out.
